Who is the prince of the kingdom of persia in Daniel 10?


Rabbi Ari Shvat

Elul 16, 5782
I presumed to believe angels have no free will and only do the will of G-d as in the book of Job. However, this “prince of persia” seems to be an angel in rebellion of G-d. Is this a rebellious angel acting on free will or is this chapter referencing Balshazzar? Thank you
Neither, it is the angel of Persia (each nation is assigned an angel by God) doing the mission he was sent to do.
